    I've used Rodinol and had decent, but grainy, results. There is always D-76, which gives good results with just about anything.

    I've done kb100 in Xtol stock with very nice results. Today I'm going out with several holders of pl100 and I think I will try that again.

    I was pleased with the results I got using HC-110, dilution B.

    (...but more pleased with the results from Pyrocat-HD!)

    I answered over on the LF forum, but in addition, these shots are all Efke PL100 4x5", EI 200, Acufine 4 min. at 68 deg. F, agitating every 30 sec. in a Nikor tank. Click on the image to cycle through about half a dozen shots--

    Beutler's, 10 min, or Rodinal 1+24, 8 min. Both on a JOBO CPE. 5x7" negs are just great, but I'm beginning to consider cutting the development back by a little bit.
